Messrs. Parnell and Davittare limid,
as a matter of principle, about asking
any more aid from America for poverty
stricken Ireland. "When this country
contributed liberally in 1878-9, those two
leaders gave a solemn promise that they
would never call again for assistance.
There might have been some sense in
this pledge if Parnell, Davitt & company
could have coupled with it a guarantee
that Ireland would have no more bad
crops. Don't he so sensitive, gentlemen.
If Ireland is starving, say so, and this
country wont mind your foolish pledge.
ADULTERATION OF FOOD.
It may not seem an important matter
in comparison with some of those upon
which congress has taken action, but it
is deeply to be regretted that the recent
session of national lawmakers adjourned
without fully considering the "Paddock
pure food bill," the intent of which is to
prevent the adulteration of articles of
daily consumption. There has been
widespread objection to tho action of
congress in taxing oleomargarine and
compound lard, neither of which is an
unwholesome product, and both sold, as
a rule, upon their merits, but there is a
popular demand that a general law be
passed to prevent the manufacture and
sale of fraudulent adulterations.
In France the law requires that an
adulterated article be labeled, and the
penalty for selling or exposing for sale a
spurious imitation, with intent to com
mit fraud, is very heavy. The law af
fects other than food products, extend
ing to textile fabrics and the work of
tho goldsmith, tho amount of alloy used
in manufacture being required to be
plainly stated. It is the health of the
people, however, chat should first be
considered, and while the "Paddock
pure food bill" contains, possibly, a few
objectionable features, it is a move in
the right direction and appears to have
met very general approval among trade
interests in all sections of the country.
THE ROCKYLIOUNTA IN TUNNEL.
That was truly a great enterprise pro
jected in 1880 of driving a five-mile tun
nel straight through tho backbone of tho
continent, entering the snow capped
range of the Rocky mountains proper in
Clear county, Colorado, sixty miles due
west from Donver and coming out at or
near tho head of Snake river in Summit
county, on the west side of the range.
The projector of this work was Mr.
Mark M. Pomeroy, who has compre
hended that the tunnels through tho Alps
and through tho lloosac mountain in
Massachusetts had done much for com
merce, and that this so-called Atlantic
Pacific railway tunnel through tho
Pocky mountain's main range would
not only shorten the rail
way distance between Denver
and Salt Lake City more that 200 miles,
but would cut through the great mineral
belt trending from the northwest to the
southeast of Colorado. This tunnel,
cutting through these veins, known to
exceed more than 2o0 in number, as al
ready discovered, will not only enable
tho discoverers and therefore tho owners
of these veins to bring their gold, silver,
copper and lead contents to market all
tho way on wheels, but will afford,
eventually, millions of tons of freight to
such railroad as transports tho oro or
mineral to smelters.
It will cut through all these veins at
right angles, or nearly so, at depths
ranging from 1,000 to -1,500 feet below
their outbursts on the top or sides of tho
mountain thus being pierced. It is a
great endeavor and is becoming a suc
cess. A CONTRAST.
The New York World recently pub
lished, in full, tho speech lately delivered
by Montgomery, tho solitary black man
in tho Mississippi convention, who so
electrified that assembly of whito men
with his masterly exposition of tho sub
ject of universal suffrage and the dan
gers with which it threatens both races,
if permitted or allowed without any re
striction at this date in tho south.
Apparently with no thought of or for
himself, or for the effect which such
utterances would havo upon the minds
and hearts of those bound to him by ties
of blood and race, this man exerted all
his offortfi for the securing of the
adoption of a course, which would re
move from Mississippi the fear of any
thing like a race conflict in that stato for
years to come, by reducing the voting
strength of the nogro population of that
state thousands below tho white vote.
Let any fair minded man then, be ho
whito or black, contrast the action of
this negro patriot with the action of tho-e
whito men, who from time to time in
different places throughout the south,
have bethought themselves suddenly of
the extremo and urgent necessity which
had devolved upon them of protecting
the nogro race in tlieir immediate neigh
borhood by a willingness to receive their
votes for office, ami tho difference le
tween tho two styles of mon must bo in
structive. To the dark orator of Mississippi it was
apparent, as he sat thero in that conven
tion, that in the clash which would come,
should a clash be inevitable between the
races, tho weaker, tho less intelligent,
the poorer must go to the wall aud suffer
Stifling the prejudices then which would
have clouded his judgment, unnundful
of tho inevitable bfTecfof his utterances
upon the people with wliom he was
identified, he urged that which would in
the long run best conduce to the welfare
of his race, in shining contrast to tho
melanclioly list of the Mahonets, Chalm
ers, etc, who have from timo to time
volunteered to hoist a standard under
which the negro vote could rally even
perchance to a disastrous conflict with the
THE SUGAR CROP IN KANSAS.
The Barber County Index of this week
gives the following cheerful resume of the
njeratiott5 of the sugar mill at that place
Two car loads of sugar and one car

Fire cars of sugar and six cars of svrup

Th mill is maJrine from eighty-fire to

The mills want to make contracts this
fall with the farmers, for 4,000 acres of
cane next year, and 2,000 acres of beets.
If the contracts are made, Mr. Hinman
assures us that the mill will be greatly
enlarged, and about $7,000 worth of ma
chinery will be added to the plant. It
will also give work to tho mill men for
about ten months in the year. The ca
pacity of the works with the great exten
sion of time to be gained, will be more
than doubled. The mill will make 800.

good crop next year, it wants to make

he lopeka papers also speak of oper
ations of the sugar mill at that place as
being altogether satisfactory so far. In
fact, the outlook at every mill in the
state that is eing operated this year is
i.ot only satisfactory but very encourag
ing. It was feared for a time that the
severe drouth of the summer, during the
timo when the cano should have been
taking on its growth, would seriously
damage the crop and curtail the yield,
but the output of sugar and molasses so
far lias been fully up to tho best of the
most favorable season.
Present prospects are certainly most
encouraging for a successful season this
year and for enlarged operations next
year, both as to sorghum and beets,
which latter will unquestionably stand

Upon tho principle that misery loves
company the foregoing may be accepted
as orthodox protective doctrine, but
there is mighty poor consolatiou in it for
the producers of the surplus of our agri
cultural products, includinj live stock,
and who must pay more for the neces
saries that must come from some out
side source in consequence of the embar
go placed iiK)n such necessaries in the
shape of a high protective tariff. But
there is consolation in tho reflection that
an equitable arrangement may bo made
under tho reciprocity provision of the
new tariff law whereby there may bo an
exchange of the surplus of products be
tween that country and this.
Recent statements of various railways
indicate an increase in expenses in much
larger ratio to earnings thau heretofore.
The rapid increase cannot be satisfac
torily accounted for. It is stated that a
fair share of tho increaso is duo to lower
rates on freight traffic, a heavier traffic
meaning larger expenses without a cor
responding expansion of earnings. The
explanation will not prove satisfactory
to the holders of such securities, but it is
directly in line with popular demands,
and if it shall continue until a, liberal
per cent of the water is squeezed out of
that class of securities the public will bo
still better pleased.

THE WORLD'S HARVEST.
From the Boston Advertiser.
The rapidly increasing political power
of the Farmers' alliance in this country,
the Farmers' congress recently held at
Council Bluffs and tho International
Agricultural congress, whose session has
scarcely closed at Vienna, have combined
to turn" public attention to that industry
which supplies the granaries of the
world. Of a double interest, then, is the
report of the Hungarian minister of agri
culture upon tho u'heat crop of tho
world. A study and analyses of this
report is interesting as showing the
variation of tho crop in various countries
from that of last year, and the prob
abilities of an adequate supply for the
In many of the countries of the world,
including the United States, the harvest
of this year will not equal that of last
year, while in other countries tho re
turns show a decided, and in some in
stances a largo, increase. Of the coun
tries of Europe, Great Brituin, France,
Germany, Holland, Switzerland,
Belgium", Denmark, Sweden, Nor
way, Spain and Austria do not raise suf
ficient grain for the consumption of their
own people, and are obliged to rely upon
importation. The shortage is supplied
from the United States and Canada, and
from Russia, Hungary and the countries
of eastern Europe. It is interesting to
notice that while Austria proper is
obliged to rely upon tho importation of
gram. Hungary has enough and to spare,
not only for the demands of its neighbor
and political confrere, but for a portion
of Europe besides.
The variation in thf increase or de
crease of the wheat crop of different
countries is interesting. Tlie returns of
the crop m Great Britain Ehow a slight
increase, as aL-o do those from Switzer
land, Belgium and Deninarx. The in
crease in Germany has been about 15 per
cent, in Russia about 37 i percent and in
Canada 33 per cent. Such a large in
creaso in the harvest of Canada is not a
little surprising, in view of the report
that tliat of the United States shows a
fall off of about 10 per cent. So wide a
variation between the reports of tho two
countries leads to a suspicion that the in
formation of the Hungarian minister of
Agriculture may not be entirely correct.
Tho reports from Spain are depressing,
showing as they do a decrea-e of the
harvest of fully 25 per cent from the
crop of last year. The decreaze in the
French crop'is said to have been about 10
per cent from last year's figures.
The export surplus of some of the
countries of Enrope is a little surprising,
especially that of Hungary, when com
pared with that of the United States.
Twenty-eight million hectolitres is put
down as the limit of our possible export
irplus, while that of Hungary nearly.
If not quit, equals these figures. The
surplus of Roumnnia is alo large, while
that of Russia nearly equals tbo-e of
Huneary and the Unitl States com
bined. "Egypt, whose wheat fields have
been popularly believed to yield an im
mense surplus, does not meet thee ex
Potations this year, although its exporte
will not be insignificant.
To sum up the whole matter, it is
found that while in more then one coun
try there has bean a light harvesi, and in
one or two instances the decrease from
the vieW of last year has bee i large, the j
loss lias been more than nude up oy the
abundance which has crowned the efforts
of tho agriculturists of other countries.
Those countries which are unable t
raise a crop sufficient for their own con
sumption will be obliged to import to the
amount of 106,209,000 hectoliters. On
the other hand, those countries which
have enough and to spare will have a sur
plus of 135,500.000 hectoliters for export.
Thus the world has raised a harvest of
80,000,000 hectoliters in excess of its
probable needs. Tlie world's harvest,
therefore, is fully equal, this year, to the
"Give the devil his due" but who the
devil is he?
